Sacred Old Tom Gin
This is a high-strength interpretation of the 18th-century staple, with bold notes of Juniper & naturally sweet Liquorice Root, alongside a modern flourish of vacuum-distilled Spanish Sweet Orange Peels, which accentuate this classic sweeter gin. It was awarded the World’s Best Old Tom Gin at the World Gin Awards 2019.
Note, this is a natural product with a high proportion of distilled Liquorice, which usually throws a fine white sediment – this is completely harmless and does not affect drinking quality.

HANDMADE AND HANDCRAFTED
The Sacred Spirits distilleries are unique as they are designed by Ian to his exact specification. The setup, complete with bespoke handblown glassware from York, gives him complete control over a small volume/high quality production process, enabling him to adapt the delicate apparatus to suit every distillation.
The handling of ingredients is equally important. Each specimen from Ian’s organically-sourced library of botanicals is macerated in English wheat spirit for 4–6 weeks to achieve total extraction (100% of flavour and aroma). These rich extracts are then distilled separately, allowing Ian to experiment with multiple combinations of flavours, before blending to make a Sacred Spirit.
